So what's the deal here then?
Apparently the supply had problems a few months ago, but I don't recall any news on it. And just what is the problem?
Is it a pump issue? Has the pipe line broken? Or sabbotaged?
If it has broken and split then there's gonna be one heck of a lot of fuel polluting the environment.
As it stands, there is no information as to exactly what the problem is, but 'production' has now begun again.
could the airport possibly not have paid their fuel bill?
Why was production stopped? Was it really a production issue, if so, why was this issue not solved the first time around?
I'm doubting the 'production' story..
Aviation fuel is being sent to Manchester Airport after it ran out of supplies, a spokesman has said.
A spokesman for the Essar refinery in Cheshire, which pipes fuel to the airport, said production was "now back to normal".
An airport spokesman confirmed fuel was on its way but disruption was expected until early on Thursday morning.
Just how the heck does an airport run out fo fuel?
Have they not go meters to tell them the tanks are almost empty? Can they not have a back up supply?
One thing may be for sure...no passengers or businesses will be compensated for the delays/cancellations..
Good luck if you're flying into/out of this airport right now.. Seems flights will land there but fly on to another airport to refuel.. talk about
rush hour traffic..
